The circus of Media Day has come to an end and before we get back for another podcast in early August here are a few interviews I did with Daryll, Sean and Jared that were uploaded to TwitVid.
Daryll Clark looks about the same to me, hear what he had to say about the weight talk and winning back to back Big Ten Titles. WordPress won’t let the Daryll video embed: Daryll Clark at Media Day
Sean Lee has fully recovered from the knee injury, we’re certain because Matt Millen checked it out during our interview.
Jared Odrick had a breakout season a year ago and plans to build on it in 2009.
Oh the ignorant bliss of last week, when nothing but the play on the field was our biggest concern. As you wait for today’s game against the Beavers and cross your fingers that no player gets a DUI on the way to the game, here is a look at Daryll Clark’s thoughts after last week’s win. – Mike
Clark’s first game as the starting quarterback for the Nittany Lions went off without a hitch. He talked to us about his nerves before the game, his relationship with Pat Devlin, and how much of the offense we really saw on Saturday. Clark was 11 of 14 for 146 yards and one touchdown.
After a stellar performance in week one against Coastal Carolina the Nittany Lions get ready for a test from the Beavers of Oregon State. Mike and Mark discuss the impressive offensive outburst as well as the struggles of the defense as they gave up 198 passing yards.
Tune in for a preview of Oregon State as they present the Lions with their first challenge of the season and check back all week for more blog posts to get ready for Saturday.

When it comes to picking starters, we all know JoePa’s propensity to pick upperclassman over more talented younger players, however in this case I think the consensus has to be that Joe made the right choice. No matter how talented Pat Devlin is at this point in his career, the play-calling in a pro-style offense has been horrendous over the past few seasons. That could have been because of a certain abysmal decision-maker who the coaches had no confidence in running the offense, but thats beside the point.
Clark can run the spread or the spread “HD” that defenses in the Big Ten have constantly struggled to cover. Plus as with Michael Robinson before him, Clark can make things happen outside of the realm of the play call giving him the opportunity to keep defenses off guard.
Paterno mentioned that Devlin would get some time in the Coastal Carolina game, after the lead balloons to 30 likely, but you have to love his commitment to Paul Cianciolo. Cianciolo will be the third string QB once again but Joe has praised his ability and you would think from the comments that Cianciolo could one day win the Heisman. Not to bash Cianciolo but the chances seem slim that he will get any real playing time outside of mop up duty, but thats why we love Joe because he is great to the players who give him their full effort.
Now it is time to get down to business and move on from the worthless questions of who will start and focus on the first game of the season against the Chanticleers!
